The Only Way: Abolish the TSAby Becky Akers
Dec. 01, 2010
"I was almost in tears," passenger Rhonda Gaynier told the Associated Press. "I've never been so humiliated in my life. It's one of the worst experiences I've ever had to endure."
She could have been speaking of the "enhanced pat-downs" -- sic for "sexual assault" -- the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recently introduced at airports. But AP quoted her in 2004, when the TSA last tried mass molestation. Two Russian jetliners crashed that August within minutes of one another. A Chechen woman had boarded each plane, and the wreckage contained traces of what may have been explosives. But the debris was scattered so widely investigators on the scene refused to guess the disaster's cause.
That didn't daunt the TSA. Its omniscient nitwits discerned what had happened from the other side of the planet -- and worse, shared their vision with us: they declared that not only were the ladies rebels, they had secreted bombs in their bosoms.
That's bizarre enough on its face. But it becomes especially adolescent when we recall that no woman before or since has ever tried to sabotage a flight by blowing up her chest. And these salivating teens actually work for "national security" rather than Hustler magazine.
Nor were they finished with their hormonal fantasies: lest any exploding bustiers sneak past checkpoints in the Homeland, female passengers must run a gauntlet of official gropers before catching their flights.
